Then he made him overseer of his house, and allthathe had he put under his authority.5 So it was, from the timethathe had made him overseer of his house and all that he had, that theLordblessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of theLordwas on all that he had in the house and in the field.6 Thus he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate.
